A poem about how Love became so bitter- the story about how he was cheated by the universe. Thanks for reading! :D <3 (Inspired by @rosarlei's use of gifs. A beginner's piece.😅 Be sure to check out his website in his description!)

They Named Him 'Love'

It wore him like a bruise,

It wore him like a bruise, A black and blue sign

It wore him like a bruise, A black and blue sign That drew others like moths

It wore him like a bruise, A black and blue sign That drew others like moths To a dusky,

It wore him like a bruise, A black and blue sign That drew others like moths To a dusky, half-lit flame.

Once,

Once, his care-free manner

Once, his care-free manner Was known to all,

Once, his care-free manner Was known to all, even the moon;

Once, his care-free manner Was known to all, even the moon; Who smiled upon him

Once, his care-free manner Was known to all, even the moon; Who smiled upon him Whilst the sun basked him in gold.

He was an old soul,

He was an old soul, willing to trust

He was an old soul, willing to trust And to care.

He was an old soul, willing to trust And to cherish.

He was an old soul, willing to trust And to love.

Yet the universe conspired against him,

Yet the universe conspired against him, Struck a knife in his organs

Yet the universe conspired against him, Struck a knife in his organs And wounded.

Yet the universe conspired against him, Struck a knife in his organs Then twisted.

They exploited his compassion

They exploited his compassion And left him a bruise,

They exploited his compassion And left him a bruise, black and blue.

Where once was light,

Where once was light, now was

Where once was light, now was An area populated

Where once was light, now was An area populated by malice mettle.

So the universe named him

So the universe named him 'love'

So the universe named him 'love' And left him for the masses

So the universe named him 'love' And left him for the masses As a warning of what happens

When control is lost

When control is lost And hearts are exchanged;

When control is lost And hearts are exchanged; In a moment's blindness.

"To love is to let live. And risk losing yourself."
